Mladá Boleslav, 9 November 2022 – The new ŠKODA Connect service Pay to Park now makes parking easier in several European countries: ŠKODA customers can use the MyŠKODA App or their car’s infotainment system to display parking options, view the fees and pay conveniently. After a pilot phase in Switzerland, the service is now also available in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany and Norway. ŠKODA is continuing to expand the service, with eight more countries coming soon.

“Thanks to the new ŠKODA Connect feature Pay to Park, our customers can now find available parking spaces across Europe even faster and pay conveniently online using our MyŠKODA App or the infotainment system.”


Martin Jahn, Member of the Board at ŠKODA AUTO for Sales at Marketing

Further expansion planned
Following a successful pilot phase, ŠKODA AUTO is initially introducing Pay to Park in Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, Germany and Norway. This will soon expand to a further eight countries – France, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, the Netherlands, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden – before ŠKODA rolls out the service in other European markets in 2023.

App available in the infotainment and on mobile phone
Customers can use the service via the MyŠKODA App on their smartphone or the current Amundsen and Columbus infotainment systems. The in-car app is now available for the FABIA, KAMIQ, SCALA, OCTAVIA, KAROQ, SUPERB and KODIAQ.

Easy registration
To use Pay to Park, you must have an active ŠKODA Connect account and have remote vehicle access enabled. Once the payment data is collected in the MyŠKODA App and the service is activated, it can also be accessed instantly via the infotainment system, and ŠKODA drivers can see which parking spaces they can pay for online. When they reach the car park, the driver can select the parking time and extend it using the app if necessary. Payment is made online after the parking session has ended.
